The top minds in social media marketing are converging on San Diego this week for Social Media Marketing World 2014.
Many of the conference speakers are doing great things on Facebook -- including posting photos that get tons of shares!
I thought it would be cool to put their photos to the test.
So I used Post Planner's new Viral Photos tool to pinpoint the #1 most viral photo posted by each of their pages.
These #1 photos received a wide range of fan engagement.
Some were shared thousands of times, while others were shared just a handful.
The winners were:
- Kim Garst's News' Years meme (13,204 shares)
- Steve Spangler's "pun-ny" wildlife image (8,137 shares)
- Mari Smith's post about hashtag privacy (1,282 shares)
The content of the photos ranges from promo images advertising webinars & podcast guests to inspiring quotes & messages.
And some were just plain silly. :P
So read this post if you plan to attend the conference this week.
I can't think of a better way to strike up a conversation with Mari Smith, Jay Baer or Ian Cleary than by discussing the most popular photo on their Facebook pages.
